Guiding

We use a head guide and a young pole guide. Both have very good eyes. This formula works. Each angler has a guide, when learning to cast or to see the fish, one is guide poling and the other is with the angler at the casting platform. Also when positioning the boat for wading most fishermen does not want to wade all the way back for boat pick up so the pole guide simply floats your way when wading. The guides are all well experienced in fishing the area. This strengthens your success on the water. Having essentially three sets of eyes (yours and the two guides) in the boat to spot fish, plus one of the guides to coach you and the other to position the boat to your advantage, makes for a great day.

Itinerary

First day arrival

Greeting and guest check is done and a complementary Margarita or beer is served. One will be introduced to rooms, guides and lodge. Most try to get a cast or two in along the east shore for a (first to land a) bonefish. Dinner will be served as usual and all special requests should be stated. If beer is required in fishing lunch box now is time to ask. We recommend that quality time be spent in lounge area to prep tackle and discuss tactics and fish. Upon arrival Manuel and or designated staff will check each guest in with for the Mexican VAT Tax and fishing license fee for each individual fisherman. Please note the lodge does not accept Credit or Debit cards and cash is necessary.

Full day fishing

Day starts with early breakfast with approximate time announced the evening before. Then you’re off to the boats with guides. We are not set on the traditional “8:00 – 4:00” rigid fishing schedule you may be accustomed to at other lodges. Our guides are not under the gun to pull you off good fish to meet a schedule. The only constraint is to be on the beach before sunset in accordance with the laws of the Sian Ka’an.
Your tackle and lunch chest will be transported for you. Be sure to not forget anything needed for a successful day on the water. Depending upon your location and weather conditions, the guides will start heading back to the lodge at about 4:30 PM. After arrival at the lodge, your guide will rinse your rod and reel in fresh water, clean and stretch your fly lines and store safely in the second floor lounge area ready for tomorrow's outing.

Happy Hour

Cocktails, lemonade, soft drinks and beers are available and served. Great Mexican traditional appetizers are served after boat arrivals. Join the other anglers and guests at the lodge for a refreshing and cool cocktail delicious hors d 'oeuvres. Then of course dinner is served.

After Hours

If you have the will and “can hang”, there is usually a crowd that retires to the bar and dinning area for after-dinner drinks, cigars on the rooftop Palappa, and or plenty of fishing stories. The fly-tying (Liars) table is available to guests that want to twist up some new flies for the next day's fishing, and there is wireless Internet access at the lodge for those who desire to check in with their family or friends.

Departure day

Await the van or transpiration vehicle. Breakfast as usual and a departure time conducive to flight time. Most try to get a cast or two in along the east shore for a last minute bonefish.

Location

If one were to dream up the perfect location for a saltwater flats fishing lodge, it would be hard to find one better than in the village of Punta Allen in the waters of Ascension Bay in the Mexican Yucatan (south of Cancun and Tulum) in the middle of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere. You will be based in the heart of the Sian Ka'an biosphere world heritage area and be accommodated in locally owned Casa Veijo Chac. Casa Veijo Chac is owned and operated by famous local guide Manuel Chac. Manuel Chac has been fishing and working in Ascension Bay his whole life. He has created a fantastic lodge in the heart of Punta Allen. We have been working closely with Casa Veijo Chac since its creation in 2008 and have a great understanding of the workings of the lodge and the fishing in Ascension Bay. For one of the most affordable flats fishing locations on the planet, it is very hard to beat! Casa Chac and the Mayan lobster fishing village of Punta Allen lie thirty miles south of Tulum at the end of a long, narrow peninsula of dense jungle and wild beach that forms the northeastern edge of the famed Ascension Bay. This is where you’re going! It is fly-fishing heaven style! Manuel Chac at "Casa Viejo Chac". The fishing in Ascension Bay is outstanding and Manuel offers a great package at a price that can't be beat. There is a barrier reef that is several hundred yards from shore that break the waves so that the beach area is always in a calm swimming pool state.

It has a practice or casting lessons fly rod area just outside the front door with patio furniture for Happy Hour and appetizers. A great dinning room that actually is a restaurant that serves to the village and other guests with a full service bar.
